The refurbishment and fit-out of the Jason Kenny Centre, Bolton One gymnasium offers a state-of-the-art fitness suite, dance hall, sauna and steam room.
The design and build contract was fast-track and complex in nature with extensive mechanical and electrical alterations and upgrades, structural and non-structural alterations and specialist finishes throughout.
Heavy emphasis on the co-ordination of specialist trades in the delivery of design information prior to site commencement involved the early engagement of mechanical, electrical, sauna/steam room, movable walls, specialist wall and floor finishes and close client liaison has been of paramount importance to the successful delivery of this scheme.
The construction site was located across the second floor of an operational, four-storey, multiple-occupancy, NHS, University and leisure facility with a single point access via an internal staircase and lift. The co-ordination of heavy-side strip out works and the delivery of bulk materials were managed extensively throughout the contract to ensure that access and egress via this staircase for the general public was maintained with limited disruption.
"Armitage have delivered another excellent scheme under very challenging site restrictions and on time and on budget. The hard work by the Site Manager and Contracts Manager were critical in making this a success."
